BackgroundThe optimal antithrombotic treatment for patients on oral anticoagulants (OAC) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is controversial. We analyzed the safety and efficacy of dual therapy with OAC plus clopidogrel in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients receiving drug-eluting stents (DES).Methods and resultsIn this retrospective analysis, all AF patients treated with dual therapy were retrospectively identified.
